Gene-G Applied Genetics

ABOUT

changing the
future together

Gene-G was founded in 2015 and specializes in Applied Genetics.

Since our start, we have created innovative applied genetics solutions to some challenging needs, and offer high-throughput cost-effective genotyping tools for “cash-crops” breeders.

We are constantly applying an “out-of-the-box” approach to satisfy multiple needs, and provide simple applied solutions for our customers.

Our solutions are provided in one or more of the following ways:

  • Full laboratory services
  • Ready-to-use kits to be applied in the customers lab
  • Contract “tailor made” development

Our technology and our bioinformatics General Genotyping tool are further used for:

  • Rapid gene discovery 
  • Variety genetic mapping 
  • NGS data validation    
  • Variety purity and fingerprinting

Our off-the-shelf multi-gene panels consist of the major crops of interest: tomatoes, peppers, melons, and cucumbers. 

 

your dreams come to life

Over the years, we have created more than several tailor-made applied genetics solutions for customers: Transgenic tobacco, Environment microbiome monitoring, Cannabis breeding, Castor, and more.
